Wed 19th Jun 2013 - Chicago Group buys ten Atmosphere sites
Chicago Group buys ten Atmosphere sites out of administration: More than 250 jobs have been saved after a new company acquired ten sites out of the former Atmosphere Bars and Clubs, which fell into administration in May. Chicago Group, which is led by Christian Rose, former Atmosphere chief executive, has bought the package from administrator Deloitte, which has been running the business since May. The site acquired by Chicago Group includes nine Chicago’s site – in Basildon, Chelmsford, Hanley, Kings Lynn, Norwich, Stevenage, Stourbridge, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Windsor – and a Modello restaurant in Yeovil. Deloitte closed 14 of the original 24 Atmosphere sites in the weeks after administration. Rose said: “We are really excited about the potential of these venues. With the right additional investment in team members, sales and marketing, and, of course, the fabric of the venues themselves, I know that these venues have a very bright future. It’s been a difficult time for staff at these sites and elsewhere in the company. But I’m delighted that we have been able to secure the future of these ten venues and would like to thank the staff for their dedication and hard work during a difficult period.” Rose added that Chicago Group has plans to develop the customer proposition within the estate going forward. The first priority for the new company will be to build on the success of the Chicago’s party packages and launch Christmas party menus.
